Lewis Lin, the owner of popular restaurants Susuru (Instagram) and Jade New Asian (Instagram) has announced the location of a new food stall in downtown Orlando.

Susuru Yatai will be located in the under-construction Church Street Food Hall in the historic Bumby Arcade Building at 128 W. Church Street [GMap]. A yatai is a style of Japanese food stall that became popular in the 1960s, a period of economic recovery for Japan following World War II.

Lin told Bungalower that the new concept will feature a retro atmosphere of Showa-era Japan, just like the original Susuru location in Lake Buena Vista, and will specialize in quick meals and dishes like yakiniku/yakitori donburi, ramen, and Japanese street snacks.

The Church Street Food Hall is expected to be completed by the end of 2021 and will feature 18 different food stalls once open.

Trivia: The word susuru means to “slurp” or “sip” in Japanese and is often associated with eating ramen. It’s also really fun to say out loud.
